Hello Everyone

Hi to you blogging buddies out there.

Just to let my friends know I am back and raring to get creating and making again and to catch up on all the news and gossip.

Welcome to my new followers, I seem to have increased the number by about 8, some of you I know through other DTs but unfortunately the settings on some of your blogs don't let me see if you have a blog too and if this is the case I have sent you a message of welcome through Blogger.

I have had the most fabulous week in Cyprus and the wedding I went to was just amazing. It was a fabulously warm day, the skies were blue and the afternoon drinks and canapes were at the hotel in a small amphitheatre beside the sea.  We were on a balcony overlooking the sea and small bay for the meal and evening disco. Everything was just perfect.

Ken and I took a camera each, but these are just a taste from one of them. The last one shows my friend Margaret (mother of the groom) and I at the end of the evening. I think I must have been more tired than her.

I hope that all of you have had a good week.

Take care.

MAWTT Challenge 94 - Chocolate

Hi Everyone

Today our fabulous Laurie is hosting the challenge at MAWTT and she has chosen the theme of Chocolate so I couldn't resist making a VINTAGE CHOCOLATE BAR. Well I have the photos to prove it isn't that old really and the choc is still good to be eaten - of course.

 The above photo became this...........

......... and this became ........... (scroll down to see)

We were given images from Stitchy Bear Stamps and I chose this ornate egg to work with. I coloured it up in Photoshop Elements then used it to make my own backing paper (the spotty design I layered it on is from Far Far Away). I edged it with DI and misted it with 2 different glimmer mists to get a more distressed look. I made my own round sentiment (which was a freebie last week) and printed off a larger coloured egg to embellish the top.

So here's my real chocolate contribution to the challenge this week. Great one Laurie, thanks for the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your week.
